EastEnders’ Kathy Beale to lose everything as Rocky’s gambling spirals

EastEnders: Brian Conley discusses filming first scene

Rocky Cotton’s (Brian Conley) plans backfire spectacularly in upcoming scenes of EastEnders, as he tries to hide how out of hand his gambling has gotten.

Rocky initially found himself in some serious financial problems after his ex Jo (Vicki Michelle) decided to blackmail him.

This was because he married Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth) while still being married to her, making him a bigamist.

To keep Jo’s silence, Kathy ultimately emptied her life savings and took out a loan.

But now that the loan needs paying back, Rocky hasn’t been able to contribute his share of the repayments, which led him to start gambling behind his new wife’s back.

Official spoilers for the BBC soap show Rocky lies to Kathy and say that he hasn’t been paid yet by Jay (Jamie Borthwick) when the pair discuss their frustrating living arrangements.

Kathy thinks that it is time for them to find their own place, but how is he going to pay for that?

Hoping to make money fast, his first plan is to sell more cars to then use the extra commission to secure his and Kathy’s future.

But when that doesn’t work, he turns to another idea – to get their old house back.

Rocky plans to win round Cindy (Michelle Collins) and Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) in order to move back in with them.

But once they realise his true motives, the peace talks quickly descend into chaos.

The next day, Kathy and Rocky have no choice but to look for a place of their own.

Kathy is keen to put a deposit down on a studio flat for the two of them but little does she know that they don’t have the money to pay for the deposit because of Rocky’s out-of-control gambling.

Will Kathy end up losing everything as a result of Rocky’s gambling?

Last month it was confirmed that Brian Conley would be leaving EastEnders after it was reported that bosses would not allow the actor to appear in pantomime in the run up to Christmas this year.

So, it could be a tumultuous few months for his character as his storyline wraps up in time for his departure. Fans will need to tune in to see exactly what happens.

EastEnders airs Monday – Thursday on BBC One from 7:30pm.
